Hotel Minerva
Reviewed 18 October 2011

It is the third time that we stay at the Minerva, so it is about time to write something about this excellent hotel. It is located outside the crowded city center on the slopes of a hill nearby the spectacular Monte di Portofino. The surroundings are quite and the view from the roof terrace lovely. This time, we rented a room nearby the roof-terrace, rather small but modern and nicely decorated in blue-green marine colors. Large double bed, small balcony opening on the city roofs, the Golfo Tigulio and the lower, wooden slopes of the Monte di Portofino, on the right. Wonderful buffet breakfast in a distinguished garden setting (the old family house of the hotel owner's family is on the opposite side of the garden). The director, his daughter, and all the personnel will welcome you in style.
Important: the hotel has a garage which is priceless in such a crowded place as Santa Margherita.

Room Tip: The upper floors are better

I absolutely loved my stay at the hotel Minerva. The hotel is couple of of minutes away from the main attraction but don't let this discourage you. It is about five minutes away from the main street and the hotel has a roof top with an amazing view of St. Margherita (and sunbathing). I booked a room with a view, which was spectacular. The room was clean and fresh, the service was superb, and delicious breakfast. I actually extended by stay at this hotel by one night. I highly recommend this hotel and would stay there again.

Beautiful small hotel, tucked away in a fabulous location - short walk up a small hill from the water and shops. Very welcoming and friendly staff who make you feel at home. Internet available and wonderful buffet breakfast in a gorgeous garden setting. Room was small, but lovely, fresh decor. Would definately stay again at Hotel Minerva in beautiful Santa Margherita. Tip: Hotel within walking distance of train station, about 15 minutes or so if you don't mind walking.

The hotel is not located with any ocean view, but then again it was nice and quiet.
We enjoyed the garden where we had breakfast, which was very good!
Nice and modern rooms with a comfortable bed and a nice bathroom.
Helpfull staff and good service:)
Short walk down town with good shopping and dining, and a fine walk to a priceable beach with beachbeds for rent and a taverna:)
Also possibilities for bus or car to Portofino within 20 minutes.
